    Comments about DOUBLE HEART SANDLEWOOD BOX:

    the pictures of this box are beautiful but in person it is absolutely stunning. I gave this to my husband to keep all of his "pocket stuff" in when he get home for the day. He loves it. I also took the lid of it and had a local craftsman wood burn a 5th anniversary message on the inside of it. I know that this piece will sit on my husbands dresser for many years to come because of it quality and craftsmanship. I would recommend this product to everyone.

                Very nice box, but one end is cracked all the way through. While I understand that is a problem with "real wood" it is disappointing all the same. Nice piece, but be prepared for some flaws. Would not pay this price for item unseen in the future.

                  This was my first order through uncommongoods and I was very pleased! The box has good weight and is very sturdy. There were no rough edges or burrs as everything appears to be sanded down. It's just an all around beautiful box.
